SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT:                   

 

Mr. Meyer commented on the numerous communication we have received, especially regarding the 1st place State Championship earned by the Boys Basketball team and the 2nd place State Championship earned by the Girls Basketball team.  We have been slowly collecting some payments lately.  A third letter will be sent to seniors by certified mail in the next couple of weeks. The School Community Council hosted the first of their community education programs on Wednesday, March 14th.   Although the turnout was very low, the people who did attend were very receptive to the different information given out that night.  We had a gentleman come to do an analysis of our networking system in our building.  He spent a few hours in the morning here looking at different equipment.  He also spent some time after hours here looking at more equipment.  He is putting together a presentation for recommendations for us next month.

 

Mr. Todd Jones from FGM was present to discuss the 2012 summer project.  It appears that everything will go through as health life safety.  He is still waiting for the state super to give his approval.  All asbestos tests came back negative.  Since the floor is sitting on concrete, we will only need to raise the floor some so the resin will come out at same level.  Todd also recommends putting liquidated damages in this project in order for this project to be completed for sure by the first day of school next year.  A motion to accept the specification and the letting of bids from FGM for the 2012 summer project was made by Dave Wellen, second by Tina Winkeler.   Roll call vote:  Aye –Mary Lou Voss, Dave Wellen, Mike Nettemeier, Tim Richter, Tina Winkeler, Rick Taphorn.  Nay – None

 

Last month Mr. Meyer presented the adoption of a concussion and return to participation policy.  We already have a similar policy in place.  A motion to adopt the concussion policy was made by Mike Nettemeier, second by Dave Wellen.   Roll call vote:  Aye –Mary Lou Voss, Dave Wellen, Mike Nettemeier, Tim Richter, Tina Winkeler, Rick Taphorn.  Nay – None

 

Since there were no snow days at all this year, our last day of school will be May 21st.  The senior exams will be May 11th & 14th.  The Senior Breakfast is scheduled for May 17th.  The underclass exams will be May 17th & 18th.  Graduation is set for May 24th at 7PM.  A motion to approve the amended calendar for the rest of the 2011-12 school year was made by Tina Winkeler, second by Rick Taphorn.  Roll call vote:  Aye –Mary Lou Voss, Dave Wellen, Mike Nettemeier, Tim Richter, Tina Winkeler, Rick Taphorn.  Nay – None

 

We have several significant changes to the calendar considering some anticipated legislation and the attempt to become more consistent with the elementary districts.  All school days have to be a minimum of 5.5 hours.  Our first and last days of school will be 5.5 hours to be more consistent with school calendars with grade school for parent teacher conference days.  We have always had a 177 day calendar to try to stay consistent with elementary schools.  We had one more day than grade schools.  Every district except for one agreed to take the FTP date the day before Thanksgiving.  First day for teachers is Aug 15th.  First day for students is Aug 16th.  Freshmen Orientation will be on evening of Aug 15th.  With no snow days, last day is May 21.  A motion to approve the proposed 2012-13 calendar was made by Tim Richter, second by Rick Taphorn.  Roll call vote:  Aye –Mary Lou Voss, Dave Wellen, Mike Nettemeier, Tim Richter, Tina Winkeler, Rick Taphorn.  Nay – None
